How to Register
Aloha, the spirit of giving, is fundamental to Hawaii’s culture. Today, Hawaii residents can continue this tradition by choosing to help the hundreds of local residents who are waiting for a life-saving organ or life-restoring tissue. Life is worth giving. Leave behind a legacy of life and register today.
Questions and Answers about Registerme.org
What is the Donate Life America Registry?
Registerme.org, the Donate Life America organ/tissue registry is a secure database of individuals age 18 years and older who have made the decision to be a donor. It allows organ and tissue donation professionals to determine at the time of death if you had registered to be a donor so that your wish to donate could be fulfilled.
Is registering through the Donate Life America (DLA) online registry similar to signing up to be an organ and tissue donor on my driver’s license?
Yes. Registering through the DLA online enrollment form is simply one more way to make your donation wishes known. Many donors may even wish to register through both the Donate Life America online donor registry and the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) office.
Will my decision to donate be kept private?
Personal information in the donor registry is only accessible to designated donation professionals. The information of the donor registry cannot be shared with or sold to companies or government agencies. Should you die in a manner suitable for donation, your closest next of kin will be informed of your donation decision and about the donation process to follow.
Will I receive a donor card?
Federal regulations require all hospital deaths to be reported to the local organ procurement organization. This makes it possible for the Donate Life Hawai‘i Donor Registry to be checked each and every time a death is referred. No donor card is necessary. We recommend that everyone who registers as a donor talk to their family about their decision to donate.
